More than 1,000 people attended Fylde’s first ever “feel good” festival at Lytham Cricket Club.
The three-day event started last Friday with a variety of stalls on offer for visitors which covered; skin care, photography, knit ware, pens, artists, pottery, glass, leather, hot and cold food stalls and a spiritual section.
Furthermore, more than £160 was made for Cancer Research and several hundred pounds was collected for Brian House, part of the Blackpool Trinity Hospice.
Andrew Cowgill, co-organiser of the event, said he was very pleased with the event, especially with it being the first he has organised.
He said: “We would like to thank everyone who got involved to bring this exciting event together.
“The club were very happy with this as an initial event.
“The public made many positive comments and felt it was something very different in the area.”
A large percentage of the stall holders who were there on the weekend have already signed up for the next event at Fleetwood Town Football Club on July 17.
Despite the great response, Andrew and his wife, Simone, understand that the event plays a part in their learning process.
Andrew said: “Unfortunately the live music did not go ahead as planned because the lady co-ordinating and bringing the bands had some sad personal circumstances at the last minute.
“Fortunately, one of the stall holders was able to get a well-known local DJ to provide background music for the weekend.”
The couple are already looking forward to building upon the success of last weekend.
Andrew added: “As a first event, we would like to thank Lytham Cricket Club, in the lead up to and over the event weekend.
We look forward to working with them again in the second week in December for our themed Christmas event.”
